Gabe Newell Is Inspired By YOU

Industry Gamers is doing a new series called 'Better Know', which interviews major games industry players so that we, the plebs, may 'better know' them. First up is Gabe Newell, and guess who inspires him to do better? You. Yes you. And you, and you and you...

"It's a stupid, president-y thing to say," said Gabe, after being asked who his biggest inspiration was, "but our customers."

Thanks Gabe. You're lovely.

The interview is worth a read, if you want to know what job Gabe's been fired from, and his vision for the future of gaming.

    Even me??

    wow...

    Does that mean Gabe has 2 pairs of space invaders underwear and wears transformers tee-shirts too??

    I've never even met the guy! It's so sweet that he thinks I'm his inspiration.

    Good ol' Gabe!

    And my devotion to Valve is not inspiring enough to RELEASE HALF-LIFE EPISODE 3 ALREADY I'M NEARLY A PENSIONER, SORRY I'M WRITING IN CAPS THE BUTTON IS STUCK

      I SUFFER FROM VOICE IMMODULATION TINA
      I AM UNABLE TO CONTROL THE SOUND OR VOLUME OF MY VOICE

    Gabe is such a champ.

    Well, he should be inspired by my timeliness and punctuality, and release a game due in 2007.

    Gabe's customers? Procrastinators who wear hats.

    Obviously you're lying Gabe, if I inspired you, Half-life 2: episode 3 would've been released LONG ago, instead of leaving me hanging on the end of the story with a big "fuck you! Here's Left 4 Dead instead, play that!"

    So his customers don't want him to make Episode 3?

    I hate to say it, but anything less than a new engine (Source 2.0) and Half-Life 3 will be a bit of a disappointment. It's been too long. While Source still looks good, it's structure and mechanics are a bit dated. A Half-Life 3 with a new engine to match CryEngine 3 would be amazing. Package it with Counter-Strike 2 and release it alongside Left 4 Dead 3 on the new engine and we have a winner!

      And flying pigs.

    New source engine is a lie.
